Meet Emery Nolasco, an underwater robot engineer, and problem solver!
The open ocean and deep sea are extremely challenging environments, and MBARI couldn’t do ground-breaking science without our innovative engineers and operations staff to take us there. We’re celebrating Emery, the womxn of MBARI, and all #WomenInScience for paving the way for a new generation of curious problem solvers.
Stay tuned for the pilot episode of our new series Navigating STEM, a multimedia series exploring how MBARI staff has found their way to ocean exploration as a career—and where they’re going from here.
In Emery’s words, “We have so many questions, and if we only have one or two or three people answering those questions or coming up with the ideas, we’re maybe not capturing all of the different perspectives.”
“You’re the person who’s going to ask those questions and bring those new ideas to the table. And the world needs that, the world needs you and your perspective and what you bring.”
